Description

This report contains the results of a survey that addressed the “greening” of commercial building in the APEC Economies. Organized into three general categories, it addressed Policies, Standards and Rating Systems, and Trade as they relate to and impact newly erected environmentally responsible commercial buildings. The questions did not apply to the retrofitting of existing buildings or to residential buildings of any kind. The survey had a high rate of return, featuring 17 participating Economies, or 81% of all APEC Economies.
